Above photo shows why we dare Guarantee 
Barrett Specification Roofs for 20 years 



Above is a photograph of a cross-section cut from 
a Barrett Specification Roof. 

Note its great thickness. 

Note the five alternating layers of Specification Pitch and 
Felt Waterproofing. 

Note the heavy wearing-surface of Slag bound with Pitch. 

No other type of roofing approaches a Barrett 
Specification Roof in the amount of protective, 
waterproofing material used in its construction. 

The weight of this waterproofing material is about 
250 lbs. to 100 sq.ft., compared with 175 to 100 lbs. used 
in other types of roofs. 

The wonder is not that we dare guarantee such a 
roof for twenty years, but that some people still buy 
light-weight, poorly constructed roofs and expect them 
to give long and satisfactory service. 

Lower Cost per Year of Service 

The buyer naturally asks, "Do such roofs cost more 
than others?" Our answer is, " No, they do not." 



The experience of many years has proved that 
Barrett Specification Roofs cost less per year of service 
than any other kind. It is because they give such 
long service at such low cost that this type of roofing 
now covers most of the permanent structures of the 
country. 

It is because of these facts that leading architects, 
engineers, and roofing contractors everywhere are 
co-operating with us in the better-roofs movement 
and why large construction companies like the 
Turner Construction Company, the Fuller Construc- 
tion Company, the Austin Company, and many 
others, are so strong for Barrett Specification Roofs.

Specification free on request.

expense, is shown conclusively by this illustration of Paine's Old

DOORWAY, 

THE BRADBURY- 

SPALDING HOUSE 

at Newburyport, Mass. 
Built circa 1790 



The front elevation of this 
house was shown in Volume III, 
Number 3, of The White Pine 
Monographs. 



TTARLY Colonial Work in Massachusetts has done much to 
-*— > establish the reputation of White Pine as a building wood. 
With the exception of a few scattered brick buildings in the larger 
settlements, the domestic, political, and religious history of the early 
Commonwealth centered about its White Pine buildings, many of 
which stand to-day to tell us of the life and aspirations of the Fathers. 
The White Pine of our time is identically the same as the 
White Pine of Colonial days. By using it, the architect leaves a 
permanent record of his work, and gives the client a durable, 
economical house.

THE CROWNINGSHIELD HOUSE AT DANVERSPORT, MASS., 1798 




Shingled Walls and Brick Chimneys finished with Cabot's Old Virginia While 
John Russell Pope, Architect, New York 

Cabot's Creosote Shingle Stains 

The original and standard shingle stains. Soft, rich, and transparent coloring effects, guaranteed wearing 
qualities, thorough preservation of the wood. The thoroughly reliable stain, proved by thirty-five years' use 
under all conditions. 

Cabot's Old Virginia White 

The Modern Architectural Outside White 

The clean, brilliant, " whitewash white " effect of Old Virginia White has real distinction. It is a softer 
and yet a brighter white than paint, and its texture and color-values are essentially different in character from 
the heavy, hard paint coating. This makes it especially appropriate for the modern "Colonial," because it 
gives the house at once the aspect of well-groomed old age — a result that it would take years to accomplish 
with paint. 

Cabot's Old Virginia Tints 

This softness and textural quality have led many of the leading architects to call for the same compound 
in tints, and Cabot's Old Virginia Tints are now made in a wide variety of delicate shades. The tones are 
almost pastel-like in quality, and the effects produced are most unique and pleasing. 

Cabot's Stucco Stains 

For staining and rainproofing cement buildings. Rich colorings, without gloss or shine, and with no 
coating to chalk or peel. 

Cabot's Waterproof Brick Stains 

Made in various colors, for faded, off-colored, or uneven brick, and colorless for waterproofing only. 

Cabot's Sheathing and Deafening " Quilt " 

Warmer, more permanent, and cheaper than back-plaster. The most scientific, sanitary, and perfect 
heat insulator and sound deadener ever made. 

Conservo Wood Preservative 

For preserving posts, sills, planks, and all similar woodwork. 

Damp -proofing 

An adhesive, damp course for direct plastering.

VV r^oo 1 rLrv steam heating 

are installed in many of the most prominent Manufacturing Plants, Colleges, Schools, Office Buildings, Apart- 
ment Houses, Residences, Churches, Hospitals, Hotels, Theaters, and other types of buildings throughout the 
New England States. More than 11,000 successful installations over the entire country. 

The Webster Vacuum System utilizes exhaust steam, live steam, or a combination of the two. The 
Webster Modulation System is for buildings where low pressure, or vapor, is used. Old buildings can be 
"Websterized," often at comparatively small cost. 

Webster Sylphon Traps are placed at radiator returns and at drip points. The heat in each depart- 
ment or room can be controlled by Webster Modulation Valves. Perfect circulation of steam is assured; 
water-hammering, air-binding, excessive coal bills, and other objectionable features are overcome. 
" The Webster Guarantee is the Owner's Insurance Policy" 

Webster Engineering Service is the result of thirty years' experience. We have made fuel conservation 
a life-study. A corps of heating experts and thirty branch offices are maintained.

Slat Rolling Doors 

protect this modern, up-to-date 
elevator from fire and the con- 
tents from theft, besides increas- 
ing the available floor space. 

For convenience of operation, 
and for economy of installation 
and maintenance, owners and 
builders who have given the sub- 
ject careful study are equipping 
the doorways in both old and 
new plants with 

Edwards Rolling Steel Doors 

They are made of heavy cold-rolled steel, bright or galvanized, and may be had in the corrugated or inter- 
locking slat type. Patented Spring Release Mechanism can be applied to cause the door to close automatically 
in the presence of heat, thus serving to retard the progress of the flames if fire once starts. Doors have been 
designed and successfully operated for openings of all sizes up to 40 feet wide and 100 feet high.

GENUINE JENKINS VALVES 

BEARING THE DIAMOND TRADE MARK 

All high-grade valves, built to a service standard, 
safe for the architect to specify and the owner to 
install. Scientifically chosen metals, scientific con- 
struction, a high safety factor, are reasons why you 
can trust your reputation to Jenkins dependability. 

There is a Jenkins Valve for practically every pur- 
pose — for steam, hot water, cold water, air, or gas. 
They are made in brass, iron, and cast steel, for 
moderate, medium, and extra heavy pressures.
